Unbelievable night a throwing big baits

Went to a local pond and was throwing big swimbaits from 9-2am, lost count of how many blowups (over 15) but landed about 8 and lost about 4, all solid big girls with a few 2s and 4's mixed in, only three pictures I have are of diff fish taken by passerbys early on
Most of my fish were on a floating bluegill type swimbait

Holy smokes....that looks like a fish that you are throwing. Nice work!

Time to get the Choopy baits out.....

Can you tell us what gear you are using to throw that monster bait?

Re: Unbelievable night a throwing big baits

Those are nice....I just realized that I have a spiral wrapped semi custom glass rod that I won from the BRHS Fishing Club. It was built by Catoctin Creek. I will give that a shot one day soon....not sure I will be out there between 9p-2a, usually asleep then.

Mono leader?

Braid?

Nice job Thai!  Gotta love that night-time bite!  Best kept secret in Arcola.
